The first ever InvestComics Publications comic book ever; The Dawning #1 have arrived! Look for more information coming very soon!!

The Dawning #1 InvestComics Publications

DC Comic fans are showing a tremendous outpouring of support regarding their 3D covers. The slick covers have taken the comic shops and the collectors market by storm. The trend continues this week for DC Comics as well as InvestComics. For the past couple of weeks InvestComics has detailed each 3D villain cover with the first appearance of that character. However, the villain pool seems to be thinning out just a bit with some of these adversaries. Perfect time to get that rare breakout book isn’t it? Do not miss any of these comics, there is a potential sleeper(s) hidden amongst the crowd this week. Buckle in; it’s been a fun ride so far as we anticipate more aftermarket greatness! And as always some fantastic reads!

DC 3D Comics 9-18-13 Hot Picks

[scrollGallery id=305]

Wonder Woman (2011 4th Series) #23.1 – Probably one of the weakest villain books of all this week with Cheetah clawing her way into the life of our favorite Amazonian. Cheetah made here first appearance back in 1943’s Wonder Woman #6. Look at that cover! Now look at the current cover. Yes time has been treating Cheetah nicely. Aged well.

Action Comics (2011 2nd Series) #23.3 – Good ol’ Lex Luthor comes a’knockin this week. Of course one of the most recognizable villains of all time; Luthor’s debut came in Action Comics #23 (1940).

Superman (2011 3rd Series) #23.3 – A more recent villain takes the reigns over on the Superman comic this week; H’el is his name and he made his first appearance way back in Supergirl #13 in 2012.

Batman and Robin (2011 2nd Series) #23.3 – A twofer issue, Ra’s al Ghul and League of Assassins. Check out Ra’s debut in the Neal Adams/Denny O’ Neil classic Batman #232 (1971) and League of Assassins made their debut in Strange Adventures #215 (1968) with a Neal Adams cover art.

Swamp Thing (2011 5th Series) #23.1 – While Antone Arcane is not a household name, the first appearance of Arcane came at the helm of one of the most prolific horror penciler’s of all time. He is in fact ‘THE’ horror artist. Swamp Thing #2 (1973) was the first appearance of Arcane drawn by Berni Wrightson. Will the first appearance of Arcane ever stack up against the Ra’s al Ghul or Luthor’s of the world? Probably not, but owning this comic complements any collection. A classic from a legendary artist (and writer, Len Wein!), this is a win.

Batman The Dark Knight (2011 2nd Series) #23.3 – Clayface first appeared in Batman #40 (1940) from creators Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson. Nuff said.

Teen Titans (2011 4th Series) #23.2 – Here we have one of those villains on the cusp of a huge breakout. Already appearing on the hit television show Arrow, Deathstroke will have to make it to the big screen if DC/Warner Bros ever get their comics to film in order. Why would he “have to” make it to the big screen you may ask? Because he’s beloved by comic fans alike, he’s a total bad as*, and he would translate beautifully to the big screen. If you are in the market for a comic that has tremendous upside potential, look no further than The New Teen Titans #2 (1980). Already a high valued comic, it has more room to uptick. The debut of Deathstroke is brought to you by the team of George Perez and Marv Wolfman. What are you waiting for? Go get this comic.

Batman (2011 2nd Series) #23.3 – Penguin’s debut – Detective Comics #58 (1941)

Justice League (2011) #23.3 – Dial ‘H’ for Hero first appears in House of Mystery #156 (1966).

Detective Comics (2011 2nd Series) #23.3 – There were rumors a while back that the Scarecrow was to appear in the next Batman flick. If this occurs, it will mean an already nice payday for the owners of World’s Finest Comics #3 (1941) – first appearance of Scarecrow. Here’s a funny fact. Did you know that back in the day that shock jock Howard Stern turned down the part of the Scarecrow? That would have been something huh?

Justice League of America (2013 3rd Series) #7.3 – The very first Shadow Thief was a male. He appeared The Brave and the Bold #36 (1955).

Flash (2011) #23.3 – The Rogues are an important group because when, not if, when the Flash movie finally makes it to your local theater, this group should be considered as the villains for the film. Yes too much for a first film, but what about the sequel? Yes a big stretch here, but the glass is always half full here at InvestComics! Check out their debut in Flash #130 (1962).

Justice League Dark (2011) #23.2 – A weak showing with Eclipso at the forefront here. Fantastic 3D cover though! House of Secrets #61 (1963) houses the first appearance of Eclipso.

Green Lantern (2011 4th Series) #23.3 – The Black Hand joins the Forever Evil fray. With a Gil Kane cover; Green Lantern #29 (1964) is a nice book to own, first appearance of Black Hand.

That covers your 3D fix for this week. Now onto the Hot Picks!

DC’s hit series Arrow will bring a television character to “life” in the comic books for the first time. Check out Arrow (2012 DC) #11 for the debut of Roy Harper!

Marvel Comics will bring back the Jester in Daredevil (2011 3rd Series) #31, a long time nuisance for our beloved Daredevil. The Jester debut in Daredevil #42 (1968) written by some guy named Stan Lee. Another return this week from Marvel happens in Thor God of Thunder (2012) #13. Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year, the name Malekith the Accursed should ring a bell. He will be in the new Thor movie coming out this November. Most are probably aware by now too that Thor #344 holds the first appearance of this villain. If you have this comic, be sure to dump it very soon, prices will be coming down very quick once the hype wears off. Malekith is a onetime deal here. He probably will not be showing up in any other Marvel film after this one. Also from Marvel this week, Superior Carnage (2013) #3 will debut of the all new Carnage! This one will fly off the shelf, grab a copy.

Two number one comics are sold out at Diamond this week. Get your hands on these if you can. Zero (2013 Image) #1 will be seeing second printings very shortly, a huge interest in this book. Also Transformers Regeneration One (2012 IDW) #0 is sold out! Maybe a short print run here? Who knows, but IDW seems to have struck a chord with the Transformers base.

Two Dark Horse number one comics to check out this week are Kiss Me Satan (2013) #1 and Buzzkill #1.

As you can see from the above video this week, Stan Lee has made his way to InvestComics! The interview with Stan Lee (coming soon) was a milestone for InvestComics unto itself, but having Mr. Stan Lee welcoming fans to “InvestComics” is the Pinnacle for IC……..so far. There are more things to be conquered, so stay tuned!

There are six number one issues to check out this week. Of the 6, four of them are from the independent circuit. The most disturbing cover of the bunch has to go to Secret #1. What is up with that cover? Nasty. But that cover will bring eyeballs over to it and make people pick it up so kudos to the marketing department here. Having talented writer Jonathan Hickman on the new ongoing series helps the cause even more for this book.

So Howard Stern will be making his debut on America’s Got Talent in a month or so. This week however, Image Comics has America’s Got Powers #1 coming out. Is there any correlation between AGT and AGP? Absolutely none. Coincidence? Maybe, but marketing strategies do work to enhance the most of a trend. So don’t go looking for Stern in this issue though, you’ll get Baba-Booey-ed!

Rounding out the number one issues from the Independent market are Alabaster Wolves #1 and Rich Johnson’s Iron Muslim #1.

……..And moving on to number 2 issues now, this week we check out the ever so popular follow up’s to Saga #1 and Manhattan Project #1. Will the comics sustain their popularity with continued great storytelling? Probably so, so don’t miss out on these!

The last of the number one issues covered here are from Marvel and DC. Both are targeting the younger animated audience. Coincidence? No way, they obviously are trying to vie for the same demo here. Green Lantern The Animated Series #1 and Marvel Universe Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes #1 are the comics competing against each other this week. Both are going to rack up points with the Avengers title winning in the end.

The last of the Hot Picks this week goes to New Avengers #24. An AvX crossover with a very nice cover.

Speaking of covers, scroll through some beautiful artistry below. Covers of the Week!

See you on Monday with a very cool press release! Invest wisely.
